Prevent Back and Joint Pain from Camping

Published June 27th, 2023 by Dr. Daner

Camping is very popular during the summer due to the great weather in Broward County. Camping involves a lot of fun activities, such as hiking and kayaking. It also involves a lot of less fun activities—specifically, bending, stooping, kneeling, and sleeping on the ground. What the fun activities and repetitive motions have in common is that they can all put stress on your joints and back. Visiting a chiropractor before and after going camping can help prevent joint pain and back issues so that you get the most out of your time in the wilderness.

Generally speaking, physical activities just come with the camping experience. Hiking and kayaking are 2 that come to mind right away. To best enjoy these, it is important that your spine and extremities are aligned and functioning at their highest potential. A trip to the chiropractor before going on a camping trip will go a long way to ensure that you are up to performing your best when it comes to physical activity. It can help improve flexibility and range of motion, remove joint restrictions, and prevent pain. That’s why it’s such an effective tool for better holistic health

Making a trip to the chiropractor is important before a camping trip, but a visit after is equally important. There are many unnatural, repetitive movements that go along with camping. Bending, stooping, and kneeling put a great deal of stress on joints, especially if you are not used to doing them. Carrying heavy bags and gear is also involved in camping, which can lead to back pain. In addition, sleeping on the ground will generally cause some types of spinal misalignments or muscular discomfort even if you have a comfortable sleeping bag.
